About this title


From a neighborhood in Chicago to the waist gunner position on a B-17 to the French Underground, to imprisonment in the infamous Stalag17. Hell Above and Hell Below is the true story of adventure, survival, and heroism during World War II. Hell Above and Nell Below chronicles the adventures and trials of a young American patriot as he fights the enemy and fights for his life. Dick Lewis tells of bombing missions, his crash landing and his daring escape attempt through Nazi occupied France. Hell Above and Hell Below follows Dick Lewis' terror and torture at the hands of the Gestapo, and his despair and struggle for survival as a prisoner in Stalag 17-B. Hell Above and Hell Below is one man's story, finally written down after over forty years.
